Another problem we identified was that review score that appears at the top of a product page didn’t always reflect the dynamic nature of the game. For that review score, we’d previously only been compiling an overall score using a simple calculation of the percentage of all reviews that were positive. This let us be really transparent in how the score was being calculated, but didn’t accommodate cases when a game has changed a lot (for better or worse) over time.


To address that, we’ve now added a Recent review score that calculates the positive percentage of reviews within the past 30 days (as long as there are enough reviews posted within those 30 days and as long as the game has been available on Steam for at least 45 days). The overall score is still present as well in case you still find that information helpful.
